Lanny Davis says Cohen's closed-door testimony was "game-changing," chock full of new information


Lanny Davis, attorney for Michael Cohen, tells Rachel Maddow that "game changing" information related to "lying and obstruction evidence" was developed with Cohen's testimony to the House Intelligence Committee today, prompting them to ask him to return on March 6th.

Davis could not go into detail about the testimony, but said it mostly related to “lying and obstruction,” not the core of the Russia investigation.

“I think that the Trump White House, and Mr. Trump himself, doesn’t seem to have read the definition of obstruction of justice or of suborning perjury,” Davis said. “That’s about the best I can tell you, but it’s pretty explosive.”


Cohen is slated to return before the House Intelligence Committee on March 6. “There’s not much I can say other than it was very productive,” Cohen said of the first session. “As I said, I’m committed to telling the truth, and I will be back on March 6 to finish up. There’s more to discuss.”
